THE OAKLEY EAGLE
NUMBER 9 OAKLEY, CASSIA COUNTY, IDAHO, THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 1906. VOLUME 10. Our Mother. We were called to mourn last week the loss of our dear mother, in our estimation the dearest, sweetest, best woman that ever graced the earth. For fifty-six years and more mother fought the strenuous battle of life, coming out victorious in every contest, but has now succumbed to the grim reaper and has gone to the land where the sun never sets, where the rainbow never fades, and where she shall be forever free from sorrow, pain and ache which racked her body here. We accept the opinion of all who knew her that she was, indeed, one of earth's noble wo men. She was the embody ment of goodness itself, and will for ever remain our ideal of true and beautiful womanhood. When » young she entered that which is so very order of marriage dispised by the world, but to which she was so sincerely, de votedly converted, and which did for her what nothing else could do, crushed every selfish, sensuous, worldly tendency, and which developed to highest ex cellence every virtue that belongs to wife and motherhood. She bore and practically reared twelve strong robust children, the youngest at her demise being eighteen years of age. She loved her children tenderly and her love has to some extent been re quited, for she has always en joyed the supreme confidence and almost reverential devotion of her sons and daughters. She cared little for the tilings of this earth, save as they contributed to things eternal. She was highly intellectual and always took a things that She lively interest m tend to soul development, was a faithful and loving wife, unselfishly devoted to her hus band's interest, and welfare. For her husband, her children, her friends and acquaintances, in deed for all ot God's children she lived, and in the Lord she has died. To Him we reluctantly, sorrowfully, commend her spirit; and may He grant that she shall still have her loving protecting guardianship over us. More School Talk. In spite of all we are not yetut terlyjdiscouraged. We still main tain that the people of this lo cality need and must have better school fi eilities. In wealth and numbers we are rapidly increas ing, and our educational inter ests much keep apace,/ or we shall be obliged %o take a back scat in Cassia county and in Idaho. We have confidence enough in the poeple to believe something better awaits us. We believe that the people will rise to the emergency and will establish such conditions as will make it possible for our boys and girls to receive a common school education birthright of every child in Amer ica, Fathers, Mothers: Friend let your voices be heard: Arouse your neighours and your friends and let the clamor for a central school be everywhere heard. You deserve it and you are most unkind tovourselvesifyoudo not exercise every effort to obtain it. Encourage your trustees:t hey are thoroly converted and will do their share if they shall receive the proper support, Yes, yes, YES lets have the central school and lets have it quick, trustees, we expect you to act, and that at once, if the task be full of trial weary not. If you meet opposi tion, fear ye not; If you love your home and children, forsake THEM not; the Spring Time and Gardening. These are the d'tys when mor tals feel most their kinship to nature, and long most to get in touch with mother earth, get a garden rake, a shovel or a hoe in hand, seems to be the chief ambition of all, and this combination is the most striking picture that dots the landscape. There is an inexpressible satis faction in turning up the rich brown mellow earth, and as one drops the rich seed, he almosts sees it sprout and grow, and he anticipates with much pleasure the choice viands that in a few weeks shall adorn his table, and shall contribute so generously to his gastronomic felicity. 11 is is to be the garden of the town, and he is to be the envied one, in all the country round. Unfortunately, however, his dream soon ends. Ills enthus iasm and energy fail him long ere the tender spouts reach the ripened period, and if perchance anything at all is obtained from this wondrous garden, it is due not to persistent care and cul ture but rather to indulgent na ture who is always willing to do far more than her share in sup plying not only the necessities but the luxuries. The products of a well kept gardens are indeed luxuries to-day—and if we were decent agriculturists we should make them necessities. We should feel that the best that can be had is none to good—yea, a prime necessity, and assuredly of all things, a good vegetable diet is one that can be easily pro cured by anyone who would. As a rule the farmers of the west are the poor est gardeners in the world. They are so engrossed in the larger and less profitable things, thatjit is only once in a while that you meet one that has wisdom enough to know that a home garden is the most satisfactory investment that can possibly be made. Yes, ye enthusiasts that are running about today with your hoe and your seeds, plant, nourish and care for your tender To plants, but be perservering and persistent throughout the sum mer, and realize if you can, your ambi modest to-day o tions. A Burning Shame. [Communicated] The educational situation in Cassia county is desperate. Not withstanding, there seems to be no remedy. There are just enough that are satisfied with present conditions to thwart every plan for improvement and to frustrate every move ment for betterment. What seems worse than all, there are some pretentiously good citizens in our midst who croak as loud as anybody for improvement, hut who stealthfully, snakelike undermine every effort for ad There are others vancement. of the same class, who croak for education and advancement, but who cannot see farther ahead than the end of their noses, and either ignorantly or maliciously oppose every advance movement because perchance it may vary an iota or a hair's breadth from their own preconceived ideas. lt is a great pity and a burning shame that not a step forward in a public way can be taken. May the Lord forgive some for their narrowness, bigotry, and selfish ness. We have no excuse for them. Rtniiovel of County Seat. There is a strong sentiment in favor of moving the county Burley, Burley is on the railroad, and, is thc city of the future. This change will meet with almost universal approbation as it will bring the county seat 16 miles nearer to Twin Falls; 10 miles nearer to Oakley, Marion a-; 1 Basin, and win * b sod seat from Albion to tance of travel from and all points along the . It will also be favoi south side, ed by quite a goodly number of the residents of Yale. Albion, Elba and Almo. Burley is the logical site for the county offices, therefo.e there will be little or no opposition to the change. This will leave Albion a model school village, with the state normal and a splendid local school.— Oakley correspondent Deseret News. Idaho Falls Man Drown in Canal Idaho Falls, Idaho, April 15.— While dipping water from the city canal this morning, William Montgomery a well known citi zen, fell in the water and was drowned in the presence of his wife and another woman, accident occured within a mile of Idaho Falls. Mr. Montgom ery was on a plank over the canal. He dropped his bucket and fell while reaching for it. The body was recovered after the canal had been dragged half an hour. Mr. Montgomery had just cele brated his 90th birthday, He had been a city employe for some time. He was the father-in-law of Ralph Wills and John Brand, prominent business nun of Idaho Falls. The The More Pity toDistrictNo, 16. A petition signed by residents of school districts No. 6 and 10, asking for the consolidation of said districts, was duly consid ered, as was also a remonstrance against the consolidation signed by residents of district No. 16. Petition denied for the reason that the names on the remon strance who are residents of dis trict No. 16 out number the names on the petition two to one.—From Commissioners pro ceeding in Cassia'County Times. . Brains Leaks. If it is worth hearing the world will hear it, He w'ho gets without giving, dies without living. ^ A better day than yesterday or tomorrow is today. Gifts without sacrifice cannot be classed as charity. Charity is offered as an excuse for a multitude of sins. Too many wear themselves out trying to escape work. It is unchristain to find fault with anything that make men better. A square meal is the first step in the conversion of a starving sinner. If we could cure faults as easily in as we could find them, what a j perfect world this would be. J bout half of the things bought if Lsh were demanded would be bought. Happiness consists largely in learning to get along without j a lot of things we think we need, A cistern must be supplied be fore it can give but it does not have to wait until it is filled, The man who fails to vote has j no good ground for complaining | about corruption iu tln^ad minis tration. One reason why half the world does not know how the other half lives is because it does not ! want to find out. The better part of a nmn.'s life | is that in which he is busy trying ! to forget a lot of things he thou ght he knew, Every time we see a ''for rent" advertisement with the state ment, no children allowed," we yearn lor the power to make heaven a place where we can tack up a sign, ''no such land lords allowed."—From theCom moner. Serious Smash Up. On Sunday afternoon last as Mrs. C. G. Elison and daughter Sadie were returning from taber nacle service they were rnn into just below the lower drug store and thrown from their carriage. Sadie was practically uninjured but her mother was severely knocked and bruised, and had a a deep gash cut by her broken spectacles on her forehead. She was dragged some distance and was rendered unconscious. Dr. Emerson was hastily summoned and soon had the patient resting comfortably. She is now recov ering nicely. R. T.
